Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Before Baby Arrives 

Your birthing experience doesn’t start on your due date. Your body has spent weeks preparing to bring your new bundle of joy into the world, and so have you. That's why we offer free classes to prepare you for caring for your baby. 

The classes are offered in English, Spanish and Creole (by request) and are ideal if you’re a first-time parent in your second trimester.  

Topics include:  

  • Anatomy and physiology of pregnancy 

  • Stages of labor 

  • Comfort techniques for labor 

  • Caesarean birth  

  • Breastfeeding  

Make sure you bring pillows (or two if you’re bringing a partner) and a blanket or mat to class. The class also includes tours of the Maternity Unit.
